Hi all,

Yesterday I gave an official mock from GMATprep app and got Q47V23-580. I’m disheartened to see this score as my score previously was 590 in veritas mock and 610 in Kaplan mock. Both time Q47. So on total my Q score didn’t change. But even after months of studying I still lack verbal score. Previously with Kaplan mock I had 3/13 SC questions and 7/14 RC questions right. Now as I concentrated on SC it is 9/13. But my RC went to 2/14.
Any tips on how to be consistent in verbal?
I plan to get 710 at least.

Hi Sasindran,

GMAC has publicly stated that the Official Score that you earn on Test Day is within +/- 30 points of actual ability. Assuming a similar 'swing' in how your CATs function, these 3 CAT score results show that you essentially performed the same each time (about 590 +/- a few points). Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take each of your CATs? How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

hi rich,

1. Almost 3 months. but not continuously. I can say 10 hours a week
2. Manhattan-SC. Random quant questions/GMATclub questions. CR of Veritas. My biggest mistake is that I didnt even open OG till now.
3. Kaplan CAT was on Sept1 and the official mock on 7-Jan18. Kaplan-Q47V27, Official-Q47V23.
4. Mostly in march end or april start
5. September onwards
6. ISB, IIM-A&B, NUS and Schulich.

I am non native and I understand verbal will be the toughest. But any tips on improving RC will be helpful.

TIA,
Sasindran S

Hi Sasindran,

The two CATs that you listed were taken almost 4 months apart - but the score results are almost identical. This implies that you may have gotten 'stuck' at this score level and you're going to need more than just 'tips' to hit your Goal Score. You're going to have to make significant changes to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections - and all of that training will likely take at least another 2-3 months of consistent, guided study. Right now, continuing to answer practice questions 'your way' is not a good use of your time. Given your Score Goal, you need consistent, professional guidance, so that you can learn all of the patterns, tactics and 'secrets' of the GMAT (without having to try to figure out all of that stuff on your own). You would likely find it beneficial to invest in a GMAT Course of some kind (either Guided Self-Study or instructor-led).

1) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

Rich

Hi rich,

I can spend 15 hours of dedicated preparation, a week. Due to my current economic condition I have to rely only upon my Self preparation. Any tips to improve verbal will be helpful. I whole-heartedly appreciate your concern towards Guided study.

I am at a stage where I almost end up with two close answers and choose the wrong one out of the two. Any tips w.r.t this??

hello, I gave my mock test, and I skipped the whole part, either verbal or quantitative.
result is Q46 V10 and Q5V32

hi, Rich, I cannot access to free course or free CAT package within the first 24-trial hours. Does the trial have any flaw, if true?

Hi Sasindran,

I completely respect each Test Taker's financial situation, so if you're looking for free practice materials and advice, then the forums here are certainly a great place to find both. It's important to keep in mind that a high GMAT Score is valuable in a variety of ways - it will strengthen your Business School application(s), open up the possibility for Scholarships and potentially be important when job hunting (certain companies have been know to ask for a job applicant's GMAT Score). This is meant to say that if you're trying to save money on your GMAT training just to save money, then that is a dubious choice - especially since so many things depend on that Score. In addition, a 710+ Score is approximately the 90th percentile - meaning that 90% of Test Takers either can't (or won't) do what's required to earn that Score. Considering that the GMAT costs \$250US every time you take it, you certainly don't want to have to take it more than once if it's not necessary - and that might mean spending some money on your GMAT training so that you can be as best prepared as possible to face Test Day.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Sasindran,

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, Your choice of e-gmat is great. E-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Hope this helps. All the best.
